I tend to agree with caf1550, and yeti101, that the majority of the solar systems, from the center of our sprial galaxy, outward to a certain radius
is largely uninhabitable to a certain degree due to cosmic radiation.[ According to Scientific American magazine.]
Therefore, I figure that the number of 2 billion Earth type planets or any other habitable planet in our galaxy is vastly overestimated.
I believe that the majority of humanoid civilizations live in the outer sprial arms of our galaxy, about the same radius as our Earth is from the
center of our galaxy.
